Dunham Massey is a great place to visit if you want to stretch your legs and see some wonderful architecture at the same time. We visited in February so the house itself wasn't open - but that didn't stop us having a great day and enjoying the lovely winter gardens. The tearoom is a short walk from the house itself... More

We walk this route on a regular basis, call in at the new cafe but firstly visit the other cafe in the old building as they now are the only venue to do sausage sandwiches a particular favourite of the dog we walk! Why did they stop making them at the place where dogs can actually stop ? Review your... More

Visited here with my wife. Very windy and cold day. Plenty of visitors though, Hall not open on this day. The Gardens have had a lot of work done on them and some new planting has taken place. As the year goes on it should look fantastic. Visited the Restaurant which was quite full. Another Good Day Out.

Free to enter the grounds. Car parking is £6. Nice walks around the park. Dogs are ok if on a lead. Deer areas are marked on the paths. Newly built area for the toilets and café. A good day out.

We visited Dunham Massey's National Trust site recently... it is located near the Altrincham/Lymm area of Manchester... This GradeI listed building has been owned by the National Trust since the death of the Earl of Stamford in 1976... it was also a military hospital during WW1... As well as a wonderful house and gardens (which include the largest winter garden... More

We visited on a busy sunny Saturday and were immediately impressed by the fact that there was still adequate car parking. The visitor centre was bright and spacious and the staff were informative and welcoming. We arrived at lunchtime, but the snack restaurant, though busy, was well able to cope and we had no problem getting a seat. Staff were... More

We arrived and had a wander around the house which took about 1.5 hrs. When we emerged a lovely lady called Joan was doing a gentle walking tour of the grounds which was smashing. Whilst taking us on a leisurely stroll she told us a little of the history and all about the wildlife, the deer are quite unperturbed by... More

I paid £30 for my partner and I to enter, plus the £6 parking and an additional £1.75 for a bottle of water. The deer park was the highlight of the visit, which is disappointing as I've since learned I could have visited here for free. The house may be of interest to people who enjoy looking at old buildings... More
